5 Broken Cameras
Director: Emad Burnat, Guy Davidi
Israel, 2012, 1 hour 30 minutes, Arabic with subtitles
A powerful personal testimony that shows exactly what life is like in occupied Palestine. Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, bought his first camera to record the birth of his youngest son. Over five years of village turmoil, Emad records as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, Israeli settlers take their land, his cameras are smashed, and lives are lost. With overwhelming power it gives us a direct experience of what it’s like to be on the receiving end of oppression and dispossession. A defiant, hopeful, incredibly moving, hugely revealing film about how people struggle and survive such a life.
